Dominican Republic, AD600-1400.

Taino Indians AD600-1400.

For about a thousand years the peaceful people known as the Taino had thrived in modern-day Cuba, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and many other islands in the Lesser and Greater Antilles.
But less than 30 years after Columbus' three ocean-crossing ships dropped anchor off the island of Hispaniola, the Taino were destroyed by Spanish weaponry, forced labor and European diseases. Just about all that remains of their culture is a few artifacts and the handful of Taino words that survive in modern English, including barbecue, canoe, hammock, hurricane and tobacco.
